This is a very old temple dedicated to a form of Goddess Shakti called Bhagavathy Amman or Kanyakumari Devi. The temple is well maintained. Visited in the evening. Queue was very short. Quick darshan of the enchanting Devi who has been presiding over Kanyakumari town since time immemorial. It was a bliss to get the Goddess's darshan in this temple.

One of the major Shakti Peethas, Kanyakumari finds mention in almost all Shakti Peethas compilation lists. Bhagavathy Amman temple is the abode of the virgin Goddess. A very beautiful idol of Bhagavathy is worshiped inside the sanctum. Temple timings are from 6am till 9pm, though it remains closed between 12 to 4 pm as practised in numerous temples. Males are...
